Stay, My Beloved, tarry a little longer;

Carry this besotted Lover,

On the lap of Your infinity.

No more struggle, Your sweet child

Is now exulted in delight,

As my heart cries, the Spirit burns,

With the ecstatic thrill that floods the Soul.


The power of Your Opulence,

And the joy of Silence,

Embrace me like a glow of delight.

I sit unmoving, yet swaying and waltzing,

To the melody of Your inner Harp.

My breath, like a Yogi in Pranayama,

Flows like rushing currents, and yet,

Dances like zephyrs in a sacred Temple.

Master Lover, as You play to my capacity,

Tears of gladness wells up from my eye lids,

As my Being sighs,

For Your children of tomorrow’s sun.

While in a continuum of thrills,

Your sweetness flows from pore to pore.


So please stay, my Sweet Lover.

Tarry a little longer.

I can’t have enough of

This calm serenity; pulsating Light,

I long to wine and dine, O sacred Guest,

A bestowed honour, so as to leave me

Inebriated at Your Table,

Lost in trance; absorbed in the sweetness of Love.

Let my Essence thrill and my heart jump in exultation,

To the glory of Your Love.

-Manatita 3rd June, 2014. Copyrighted.

Just stumbled onto this one by my Guru. I think that Gypsy will like it.

There can be no real service

To mankind".- Sri Chinmoy

      I was thinking yesterday, "tarry a little longer" and slept off. Woke up this morning and read this again. This is really nice... I love the phrase. Things like this interest me

      To tell you the truth, my Sweet,

      I did not realise that you had not seen it. After all, you comment on a lot of my poems. My fault. I usually send the link to people after a while but I did not realise myself.

      I know that you are a sweet and loving poet. No worries. My gratitude to you for visiting and your kind and loving sentiments.

      Manatita how absolutely lovely. Your poetry is divine and I am honored by this wonderful tribute. I am truly sorry I have not responded but I had no idea about this until today when I was reading my other notifications I discovered it. I hope I can be forgiven. I really, really am delighted by this. Thank you ever so much. Lots of special blessings from me.

      yes my theme of poetry is also based on love. i have some unfinished poems that i just stop writing because i think it doesnt make sense. but ill try to edit and post some of them as well

      Yes. Happens.

      I used to write in my teens, though. I am good in any area. Until recently I was doing most things, but now I want to write for the Divine and my habitual theme is Love. I recite in Covent Garden in the city twice a week.

      yeah i like in the UK. you know after I learnt about 5 different poems (Island man, Blessing, Slough and some other poems (william blake's included) that was when i started thinking about poetry but a friend of mine actually had to give me the push. I was like a still vehicle waiting for a push before I could move

      Came from work not too long ago. Do you live here? (smile) Anyway, glad that you respond so quickly.

      Your poetry shows much practice. I always tell others to read; to practice, practice, practice ... this is what all the great writers say. You also need Grace from above. Most great poets pull either consciously or unconsciously from the Divine. God speed!
